GIRARD, OHIO – After tailing 1-0 through the first frame, Lakeview took control of the game to beat Girard 13-2.

The Bulldogs immediately responded by scoring five runs in the top of the second, highlighted by a Kalyssa Werner single scoring one run, a Kennedy Barlett triple scoring three runs, and a Gianna Caruso single scoring one run. Lakeview then used a three run fifth inning, a one run sixth, and a four run seventh to equal their 13 runs in the game. Ava Bacon took the ball for Lakeview.

Bacon pitched seven innings, allowing six hits, two runs, one walk, and striking out a game high nine batters. Solid defense was another component to the Lakeview victory as the Bulldogs did not commit any errors in the field.

Lakeview will next square off against NE8 conference opponent, the undefeated South Range Raiders on Wednesday evening at 5:00 p.m.
